Street artist Pegasus painted the tribute in Great Eastern Street dedicated to the Wham! singer, who died unexpectedly on Christmas Day aged 53.

The artwork on a white hoarding consists of three images of the music legend holding a jacket alongside the words “Never gonna dance again” - a lyric from his single Careless Whisper.

Passers-by have been stopping to take photographs of the painting, which took four hours to finish.
